# B-hadron cross-section measurement in pp collisions at sqrt (s) = 14 TeV with the ALICE muon spectrometer

Abstract : ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) is the LHC detector designed to measure nucleus nucleus (AA) collisions where the formation of the Quark Gluon Plasma is expected. The experiment will also study proton-proton (pp) collisions at 14 TeV. Amongst the relevant observables to be investigated in pp collisions, the B-hadron cross-section is particularly interesting since it provides benchmarks for theoretical models and it is mandatory for understanding heavy favour production in AA collisions. The performances of the ALICE muon spectrometer to measure B-hadron cross-section in pp collisions at 14 TeV via single muons are presented.
